CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) Service & Repair Brantford, Ontario

 

A traditional automatic transmission uses a complex series of gears to transfer the engine’s power to the wheels. A CVT is a type of automatic transmission, but it has no gears at all. Instead, it uses a pulley and belt system to provide an unlimited range of gear ratios. Popular auto makers, such as Nissan, Toyota, Subaru, Chrysler and Honda, are introducing CVT’s to their model lineups to offer customers an option with improved acceleration and enhanced fuel economy.

CVT Common Problems

CVT’s are still relatively new to the market and can be very difficult and complicated to diagnose and repair. While CVT’s have fewer moving parts and are simpler in design, it is new technology and our technicians have completed extensive training specific to CVT’s and are well qualified to work with your vehicle.

Come common problems to look out for with your CVT include:

  • Transmission ‘jerking’, slipping, grinding or jumping during acceleration when the car is shifting gears
  • Noisy while driving – some customers have issues with a ‘whining’, ‘clanging’ or ‘rattling’ sound while driving especially with Nissan CVT’s
  • Contaminated or low transmission fluid
  • Overheating
  • Check Engine Light On
  • Gears changing at high RPM

My vehicle is showing at least one of these signs, what should I do?

If you suspect your CVT transmission is not performing as it should be, bring it in to your local Mister Transmission. We always start with our FREE Road Test and Multi Check Inspection to identify any problems with your transmission and provide you with different repair options. The key to minimizing repair costs is to get them checked as soon as you notice them, and you most likely only need a minor repair or service.

Incredible service and communication. Had to take in a Grand Caravan for a transmission replace. Issue with thermostat and transmission cooling lines was brought to my attention and added to the original quote for a fair price. I have zero complaints. Thanks Des!

Des and his crew are nothing short of Top Shelf! Other shops recommended this and that and nothing worked except draining my bank account. I took my vehicle up to Brantford and had them take a look. After a test drive they explained their findings, gave me a timeline and a fair and accurate quote. They called me a few days early to let me know that a bay would open if I could bring it back in and the parts showed up early. I did and I'm absolutely please with everything. They are so professional, helpful and honest. I couldn't have asked for more. After 4 hours on the hoist, I left with my 13 year old vehicle running like it was brand new.
